Madhya Pradesh: Farmer gets loan waiver only Rs. 13 against a loan of Rs. 24,000

The loan waiver scheme launched by the Congress is hit by mismanagement

The Congress party with their misadventures and the politics of farm loan waivers seems to be in the middle of a severe crisis as yet another farmer in the state of Madhya Pradesh has been deceived by the Kamal Nath led Congress government after just Rs.13 was set to be waived-off against a loan of Rs.24,000, reported India Today.

Shivlal Kataria, a resident of Malwa district of Madhya Pradesh got terrified after he found that it was just Rs.13 marked against his name instead of Rs.23,815 that he was expecting in the list of farm loan waiver beneficiaries issued by the authorities.

Kataria, who hails from Nipania Baijnath village in Agar Malwa district said that he was excited when Congress announced that it would write-off farm loan after coming to power. Kataria said that the state government had promised to waive loans up to Rs 2 lakh and he was expecting a complete waiver of his loan amount of Rs 23,815 but the Panchayat list only suggests that only Rs.13 will be waived off.

“I am an honest farmer. I have been regularly paying my dues. On questioning, the staff said that I did not have a loan on me on the date of the loan waiver. There are major irregularities in the loan waiver scheme. I have reported the matter to the authorities,” he said.

The government, on the other hand, said flaws are rising due to irregularities at the stage of loan disbursal. Cabinet minister Omkar Singh Markam, however, claimed that “Irregularities which happened at the stage of loan disbursal are now surfacing. We are taking the required action.”

Kamal Nath led Congress government’s promise to waive-off farms loans under Jai Kisan Rid Mukhti Yojana has turned out to be a dud, as the false promises of loan-waivers by the Congress government have already taken three lives of farmers in Madhya Pradesh. Along with these deaths, many farmers across the state who had taken the loan from banks before 31 st March 2018 and that of more than Rs 1 lakh, have reportedly got loan waiver benefit of mere Rs 25-30.

The Congress government in the Madhya Pradesh seems to have already lost their control as the state has been rocked with severe protests by the farmers along with severe law and order issues in the state. Within weeks of Congress coming to power in the state, there has been a series of murders of BJP and RSS workers in the state raising concerns about the issue of law and order in the state.

The government soon after assuming power in Madhya Pradesh had set in new conditions to waive-off farms loans contrary to its earlier promise of unconditional loan waiver. In addition to this, the Congress governments in both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan are facing severe outrage from the farmers within weeks of their government formation, as both governments in the respective states had created a crisis by mismanaging the supply of urea.

Reportedly, a massive loan-waive scam has also been brewing in the state of Madhya Pradesh after reports emerged that various beneficiaries listed by the government eligible for farmer loan waiver did not even exist in reality. Many discrepancies and irregularities are already being unearthed in the loan waiver schemes.
